What’s more seasonal than gingerbread? You will definitely be the host (or hostess) with the most (or mostest) holiday cheer if you serve up a gingerbread house to your holiday guests. In this workshop by Taste Buds Kitchen, you’ll learn how to make one, complete with frosted candy roofs and a pretzel picket fence. The only downside? In order to enjoy these lovely creations, you’ll have to tear apart your edible artwork.

And then there’s that other seasonal treat, the pop-up restaurant. Chris Fischer and Lee Desrosiers, the team behind Martha’s Vineyard’s Beetlebung Farm and the Beach Plum Restaurant (President Barack Obama ate there in August, and visitors to Pamela’s in Pittsburgh, the Medici in Chicago and Tastee Sub in New Jersey know that BHO knows how to eat) opened Fish and Rose just last night at the old Bowery Street subway station. Fish and Rose’s philosophy will reflect the team’s successful formula: simple food, exquisitely sourced, including produce, meat and fish from the Bay State, bringing the best of Martha’s Vineyard to Manhattan.
